On page 248, right column, we say, “Sailboats or low-powered vessels are required to time their passage to correspond with slack or fair currents.” The proper description should be “vessels are advised to time their passage to correspond with slack or fair currents.”
Block Island (also noted in Long Island Sound guide)
Visitors arriving at Block Island’s Old Harbor (where the ferries tie up) for the first time since 2005 may be surprised to see a new marina on the eastern corner of the basin. Ballard’s has expanded its resort facilities to include facilities for cruisers with a new breakwater protecting the docks.
On page 235 of the Embassy Cruising Guide - New England Coast (6th edition), the text refers to contacting the harbormaster to pick up a mooring. The available moorings in Provincetown Harbor are managed by Flyers Boat Shop & Rentals and the Provincetown Marina (which also has slips). Only the privately-owned moorings in the area are managed by the harbormaster.
